1. Write a compelling Resume Headline: Your Resume Headline needs to be interesting, and has to reflect your experience and skills to catch the attention of  a recruiter. The more precise it is, the more chances of it getting noticed by recruiters. For example, writing “Experienced in software industry” is too generic, but “3 years experience in Java/J2EE” highlights your experience and your skill-set precisely.  Similarly, ‘Executive in chemical industry” is too broad and doesn’t really highlight your  designation or level of experience; whereas, “Senior manager-Operations, with 7 years in the chemical and polymer industry” does.

2. Enter the right keyskills: The keyskills you enter in your Naukri Profile need to reflect your  professional strengths. What is the best way to figure that out? Here is a tip: Fill the blanks in the following statements: I am proficient in ______; I have developed expertise in ______; I have done projects in the field of _____; I have a certification in ______; I have a sound knowledge of _____.  Whatever you write in these blanks are your ‘keyskills’. Write your Technical skills, soft skills, and tools and softwares that you know well.

3. Update your profile regularly: Make sure you update your profile at least once in 6 months. 6 months is a long time and most people add new skills, take up new responsibilities, or complete new projects in that much time – and that information should be reflected in your resume.  Moreover, your total years of experience changes in 6 months and needs to  be updated. Every week lakhs of jobseekers update their Naukri profile with their recent professional accomplishments – so if your resume is outdated by more than 6 months you may be losing out on those new job opportunities.

4. Fill in relevant fields in your profile: Recruiters search candidates based on various parameters of candidates: such as Functional Area, Education, Current Salary, Keywords, Skills, Designation, Company name etc. This means there are multiple ways in which your Resume can show up in front of a recruiter. So the more information you enter in your profile the more the chances that your resume shows up. Make sure your profile completeness bar displayed in the My Naukri Home page is close to 100%

5. Verify your contact details: Recruiters hesitate to contact candidates with unverified contact details. When an employer sees that your mobile number and e-mail id are verified, he/she is more likely to contact you for new job opportunities.

Your Job Search ends here, as you have found the Jobs that you were looking for. Now, all you need to do is express your candidature for these jobs that have appeared as a result of your search.

Clicking the ‘Apply button’ would send your profile to the recruiter as an Application to the advertised job(s). 

But before hitting the “Apply button” ask yourself the following questions: – 

  • Does my profile match the Job’s Description in terms of the roles & responsibilities that will be assigned to me?
  • Do I have the experience that matches this Job’s Requirement?
  • Am I qualified enough for this Job?
  • Do I need to relocate for this Job, if yes, am I willing to?
  • Does the CTC of the job (If Displayed) meet my expectations?

To answer these questions, one must look at the Job in Detail. Before Applying, click on the Job to open a detailed view of the job which contains all the Job information for that particular Job provided by the recruiter. We strongly recommend you to see the job’s requirements in detail, before you apply. The closer is your profile to this Job’s requirements, the higher the chances of you getting selected by the recruiter.

As a platform between the jobseeker & the recruiter, we aim at providing you with the freshest jobs& the easiest ways to search these jobs. But, after you have applied to the jobs you liked, our role is limited. The decision of who to shortlist rests purely with the recruiter.

So, if you’ve applied to a lot of Jobs, and are not getting any suitable responses, we suggest some tips that will definitely help –


  • Make sure you are applying to the right job, and you have gone through the job in detail.
  • Make sure your contact details (Phone Number and Email) are updated, so that if a recruiter wishes to call you, he does not face any problems. It’s best to verify your Email ID and Phone number.
  • Make sure your resume is up-to-date. Recruiters always ask for updated resumes.

Spare a thought for the above questions. If the answer is “Yes, this Job is for me…” go ahead andApply!

Now all you need is a little bit of patience and luck!
